Stop the Thumbsucking now! This listing is for THE ORIGINAL Reversible ME Thumb Cover thumbguard in whatever SIZE, whatever PATTERN (as seen in my sold items and as available in my craft room), whatever COLOR, whatever YOU NEED thumb cover as the one seen pictured in these images. (I cannot and will not use any licensed characters or fabrics that are copyright protected or that are for "home or personal use" - this is against the law and is considered copyright infringement!) Please only choose a fabric as seen in my sold items. (some fabrics may be precut and therefore unavailable in specific sizes as they sell out)

***Don't be fooled by copycats!***

1 - PICK:
Pink Cupcakes × Brown w/Flowers × Blue w/Flowers × PinkPurple Birdies × Black w/Strawberries × Aqua Penguins × Cream w/Trees × Black/White Doodles × Dolls × Pirates × Soccer × Baseball × Blue Vehicles × Officer Badges × Space Planets × Sports on White × Blue/Lime Stars × Tiny Vehicles wPlaid ×

2 - SIZE: I need to know what the length is for the Tip of Thumb to the bend in wrist. Even though you are choosing the size - please provide the measurement so I can confirm it is correct. If your child is very near the next size - I would recommend you go up a size to compensate for growth. When in doubt - please ask before placing your order to prevent confusion.

XSmall is less than 2.5"
Small is less than 3"
Medium is less than 3.5"
Large is less than 4"
Other (adult size) is larger than 4"

3 - FIT: I need to know these 2 measurements - The Tip of Thumb to the bend in wrist, and ALSO the Wrist measurement. I cannot make it without these 2 measurements.

It will be made with a natural cotton batting and it will be totally reversible, which keeps it fun. You will also receive 1 Binding Post. (To use - put thumb cover on, screw apart binding post, insert tube end in through the grommets and then screw the other piece on.)

**Please understand - pattern placement on fabric may not be the same as the one you are receiving and the color on your monitor may differ ever so slightly from the actual color of the fabric.

This CUSTOM item is NOT ready to ship and can take up to 1-2 weeks to be made and shipped. (please see my current shop announcement)

***PLEASE be sure to include the requested measurements as shown in the hand image during the check out in "message to seller". If you do not include your measurement at time of check out, your order will take longer to ship.

***To measure wrist, use a strip of paper and mark where they connect - then lay flat against a ruler for an accurate measurement. Do not use string or anything stretchy - as this will not be accurate.

***Please understand I cannot refund or exchange any custom order thumb covers that do not fit because you provided the wrong measurements as they are ALL custom made to fit your child esp once I place the grommets. Make sure you double check your measurements!


(Velcro will be used for children under 3 years old due to small parts and choking hazards. I don't use buckles because they pinch, and children can still get buckles off with one hand!)

The size Small fit my little girl (she was almost 5) and my older daughter wore the Medium (she was 6.5). Please see the photograph for proper fit information.

If you want to know about how the M.E. Thumb Sucking Guard came to be...here's our story:

My older daughter (M) started sucking her thumb at 8 1/2 months old. My younger daughter (E) began at 4 1/2 months old. They have been sucking their thumbs ever since. Not a day went by or a moment, when their thumbs were not in their mouths! I feel your pain, it's a hard habit to break, and I know that first hand! (no pun intended!)

Since I have my own sewing business - I finally came up with a reversible thumb cover that they were willing to wear when they were ready to stop sucking their thumb. They struggled to be ready, but the day finally came.

The rule was to wear their thumb cover from 6pm to 6pm. If they did (without complaining and trying to renegotiate) they would get a "reward" from our little treasure chest. It was a little box filled with items from a party store,the dollar store or other dollar spots.

Some nights were hard, but since they couldn't take their thumb covers off by themselves, they stopped complaining and even stopped thinking about it. It became so comfortable to wear, they often forgot they were wearing it. I helped them take it off for washing hands and eating, but then we put them back on. They also charted their progress on a monthly chart with a sticker for each day that was successful, and an "x" for the hard days. They have both been thumb free since wearing them for 3 months.

Some experts recommend starting the process with night time only. Once that is mastered, then do day time. But I say do what is right for you and your child.
